Help with Design OSPF and radio management

 

Hi

 

I need your thoughts about this issue.

 

As depicted in the attached diagram, Im hesitating about having a mkt port with a ip configured on it and also a management vlan

through the same port, is this common? or I should run OSPF over another vlan and leave the ETH port with no IP configured?

 

Thank you guys.

Re: Help with Design OSPF and radio management

It's helpful to have a /30 on each side of your rf link on your management vlan. One ip for the vlan interface and the other for the radio. That way you can get into the radios if the RF link is down. Announce it all via ospf and if you have a redundant path you will always be able to get into either radio.

Also, the management vlan doesn't have to be the same on both sides of the link, unlike some other vendor's gear. The radios don't exchange any information with each other over the management vlan.

ok, I think I got it.

 

I also want to know, based on your experience what scenario would you recommend in terms of scalability.

 

One single vlan for radio mgmt in each tower site (A) or  -as you wrote-  different /30 vlan for every radio mgmt (B)

 

 

Thanks in advance.

It probably depends on your network.

 

What I do is a managment vlan per ptp link and a management vlan for all distribution equipment (switches, AP, etc).  Typically sites are glorified router on a stick configurations.  Do whatever works for you.
